I know, I've been absent the last couple of days and here I am with 2 posts in one day....geesh. LOL
My very good friend Amy over at Love to Crop asked me to be a guest designer for this week's challenge on her blog. I was thrilled that she asked me because she is such a wonderfully talented person. Have you seen some of her stuff? Amy and I have been blogging buddies for quite some time now and when she joined the Getting Cricky DT we became even better friends. She is such an inspiration so you better hurry on over there and check things out. When she told me the theme was going to be "It's a Jungle out there" I was even more thrilled. As most of you know my favorite animal is the Elephant; I have such a collection of them from the tiniest stone carving to the biggest wood carving. I love them so much that I even have a tattoo of one. I know, a bit obsessive...But the one thing I didn't have was a wall hanging...so this is what I came up with.
Isn't this cool?The base is made from foam core, covered
with some elephant print paper. I cut the elephant
head with my E-Craft and the file I got here.
I cut the head out in 3 layers each shadowed a bit larger
I inked the base layer and the top layer for dimension
and then popdotted them on top of each other
I also used an svg tag, but I'm not sure where I got
it from and stamped the sentiment with the Amazing You
stamp set from Getting Cricky and inked around the edges also.
Now make sure you head on over to Amy's blog and link up your "jungle themed" project and you just might be a winner.
- You may enter as many NEW projects as you would like as long as they fit in the challenge theme.
- Please include a link to www.lovetocrop.com so that others may play along.
I also have a winner to announce from a previous blog hop, but that will have to wait until tomorrow...sorry for the delay, but life has gotten in the way of things this week.
